From the very start, fast-rising act Xtacy looks to dine with the legends. His second single after signing with Supreme Rights, he channels the evergreen Akosua Agyapong’s classic with the same title.
A tender highlife number, it was produced by Saafee and mixed by Sammy Qube. It also features string placements by Sobolo man Six Strings.
Riding on such masterful instrumentation, Xtacy holds back no emotions as he renders a truly captivating vocal performance which immediately places him in the first rank of male vocalists in the country and beyond.
Another thing that stands out in Frema is the brilliant curation of influence from both worlds –so that young listeners will enjoy it just as much as old folk.
Xtacy was born Emmanuel Prempeh, and is author of the critically-received Kings Of Our Prime (featuring Worlasi & Kwame X). It proved a firm footing in our highly competitive scenes, for it secured for him widespread respect because of his choice of theme and the soul poured unto the tune.
A versatile act, Xtacy also raps and produces, and dabbles in a variety of sounds from Afropop / Afrobeats, RnB, Highlife, Hiphop, Dancehall / Reggae among other genres.
